Pit Stop 2 RF Reader ™ APPLICATIONS: The Mueller Systems Pit Stop 2™ RF Reader™ is a high performance RF Reader, designed for use with the Hot Rod® Mobile AMR System. It is compatible with all current Hersey meters utilizing the Translator® Positional Encoder Register and Hot Rod AMR transmitters. The primary function of the Pit Stop 2 RF Reader is to interrogate Hot Rod transmitters to obtain the encoder serial number from the Translator register, water consumption, leak detection, backflow, no flow, register disconnect and duration data via radio frequency transmission. Initial electronic readings for new services and final readings can be obtained quickly and easily without the need of loading the entire route database for last minute reads on the fly. Verification of proper installation is easy with this simple to use RF Reader. OPERATION: The Pit Stop 2 RF Reader is easy to use. The Pit Stop 2 RF Reader can be utilized with all Translator registers connected to any of the Hot Rod options available; Metal Pit Option (Yellow), Standard Option (Gray), and the Integral Mount Hot Rod. Simply input the Translator serial number into the device via the keyboard to interrogate individual Hot Rod transmitters via RF transmission or turn it on to capture up to nine available RF readings and scroll through the list to the desired device. ID, reading and Event and Duration Data is displayed on the large black and white LCD screen for easy verification of reading information. The Pit Stop 2 RF Reader is capable of storing data for up to 1000 meters in memory which can be scrolled through by pressing a single key. An integral power management system shuts down the Pit Stop 2 RF Reader after ten minutes of inactivity to conserve battery power. An internal Lithium Ion battery provides up to 20 hours of continuous operation. CONFORMANCE TO STANDARDS: FCC compliance: Part 15 certified. The Pit Stop 2 RF Reader complies with Standard C707 for Encoded Remote Reading Systems. No FCC License is required for operation. CONSTRUCTION: The Pit Stop 2 RF Reader consists of a compact printed circuit board which is encased in a thermoplastic enclosure to provide protection against shock, dust and water intrusion. The replaceable, short whip antenna permits communication with nearby Hot Rod transmitter units. A tactile response, twelve key, overlay membrane provides immediate feedback for operation in colder climates with gloved hands. A rechargeable battery required for power is sealed with the electronics to protect it from water damage. The small size and ergonomic shape permit the Pit Stop 2 RF Reader to be carried in a shirt pocket making it a great installation and RF Reader. There are no customer serviceable parts inside the Pit Stop 2 RF Reader.
